I might like Rush a bit more if Geddy Lee didn't sound like Tiny Tim.

What a fag.

We've taken care of everything
the words read, the songs you sing
the pictures thats implanted to your eyes
its one for all - all for one
we work together til its done
never need to wonder how or why

Sounds like the utopia we are currently working towards - yippee!

My fave description of his voice was Donald Duck crossed with a vaccum cleaner Ha! No matter, Rush always was a bit more humane than most bands of their ilk..maybe because they were always a bit more melodic than the usual fare of the genre.

I read somewhere that he actually raised his singing voice an octave because it "sounded better" in the mix when recorded.

A bit shrill if you asked me. Sorta reminds me of that Prima Donna who sang for Styx. **Shudder**

Oh God....just the mere mention of Styx makes my skin crawl.

I'm still pounding some ancient Hawkwind myself....a faster, more spaced out Pre-Meddle Pink Floyd featuring Pre-Motorhead Lemmy. Sounds great on the car stereo when I'm driving home at night thru snow showers.

Excellent. I'm listening to it now. Thank you.

The only thing missing is Joey Santiago's guitar noises. He's got to be one of the most unique guitarists around.

I didn't know Frank was doing much lately aside from the Pixies reunion a couple years ago. Guess I don't follow my faves too closely.

I listen to the Madden soundtrack during workouts, it does something to keep me going.

I just finished my nightly Guitar practice.

I was working on the Richard Pick arrangement of Sarabande & Double by Bach.

My head hurts I was checking in here to see if the Broncos hired a DC yet.

BTW I never was a big 2112 guy but Villa Strangiato off Hemispheres has some killer guitar work.

I worked with a guy who was into anything the Schencker bros put out. He was big into Gary Moore also. Kinda odd combo I thought.

Yea, I liked him with UFO. Lights out in London, Rock Bottom, Love to Love You, all great stuff. I saw them open for Rush many years ago; if I remember right, and I could be wrong because I was incredibly drunk and stoned and it was about 30 yrs. ago, but Schenker always played a flying V guitar. :peace:

Early 70's was the heyday, yes. Maybe the pre-Meddle Pink Floyd comparison is a little misleading, but it was psychedelic space rock. It was much more riff driven and faster than anything Floyd ever did (although "Interstellar Overdrive" comes close to the Hawkwind sound I would say) It also has a lot of goofy, extremely dated poetry passages that are as embarassing as anything put out by the Moody Blues (remember that "Breath deep, the gathering gloom.." crap at the end of "Nights In White Satin"? That's what I mean) Fortunately, the music more than makes up for that stuff.

I was looking around for a YouTube clip and only found "Silver Machine" which IMHO, is a vastly inferior song and not a very good representation. Go to Amazon and check out some waves of Space Ritual Live for the real deal (the ones for that album on YouTube are screwed up soundwise). I think it's one of the great live albums of all time and their highpoint. The expanded version is perferred by me since it contains the protopunk "Urban Guerilla" which got them banned in 1973.
